Kimberly Bartosik/daela presents Ecsteriority4 (Part 2), a 32-minute dance constructed within a landscape of power and desire, where irrational impulses create a feeling of urgency and the inevitability of violation. Jennifer Nugent and Paul Matteson have collaborated for over sixteen years with a shared interest in movement invention that at once honors and challenges personal range. Note to Self (Part One) explores the arising and passing away of support and the ever-changing nature of intimacy over time, the reality of coming together and falling apart again and again.

ADF Footprints @ Reynolds Industries Theatre
Jul 25 @ 8:00 pm

Footprints delivers an outstanding presentation of three ADF-commissioned world premieres and two reconstructions by groundbreaking artists, performed with impeccable technique and infectious energy by ADF students. Two of Scripps/ADF award winner Lucinda Childs’ minimalist works, 2013’s Kilar and 1993’s Concerto, will be performed. After making his ADF debut in 2015 with his co-created Awkward Magic, Gregory Dolbashian returns. Dolbashian’s choreography has been described as “fluidly inventive” by the The New York Times. Canada’s Shay Kuebler’s work crosses the boundaries of martial arts, theater and dance and strives to discover new, compelling and challenging forms of physical art. Gesel Mason’s pieces seek to create meaningful, relevant and compelling art events as a way to encourage compassion and inquiry.
